Ballroom Fit offers Chair Dancing classes to nursing homes and aged care facilities. These classes enable dancers to move to music from their chairs. The music is nostalgic, with familiar artists and popular tunes from a bygone era.
Our classes create an atmosphere like any other social dance with a mixture of traditional Ballroom Dancing and moves designed for seated dancing.
Where possible we encourage residents to stand and dance with us. Floorshows and performances are provided at our Chair Dancing classes.
Joy of joys, when I was arm-dancing with a lady sitting at the back on her own, was that I turned round to see at least six of the residents were up on their feet and dancing!
I was quite emotional … one lady was crying, and she hugged me as I was leaving, and said she wished I could go every day!
The Chair Dancing class .. lots of fun and happy people!Leigh Campbell
